ESPN - [Full Article]

The Panthers really like RB Brandon Wegher, not only for his speed but for the way he hits the hole and blocks.

He was a big-time player at Iowa before off-the-field problems sidetracked his road to the NFL.

Here's the problem: The Panthers probably won't keep more than four running backs. Jonathan Stewart is a given, as is fifth-round draft pick Cameron Artis-Payne. Jordan Todman likely will make the roster as the kickoff returner unless somebody at another position proves to be better. Fozzy Whittaker currently is listed as the second-team back, though he did little against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: 

So it could be a numbers game. The story added the Panthers probably can't hide Wegher on the practice squad. He's likely to be picked up by a team looking to add depth. This one will be interesting to watch moving forward.
